tz was always viewed as the primary source for tzdist, until there IS a
primary source we can't start to create mirror sites. The mirror servers
will provide alternate views of the master data or simply mirror a
selected version of the tz raw data. We need a master that can provide
the complete history of changes to tz data properly identified, or at
least one starting from a current live version.
